    I was recently looking for a 12 1/2" Spinning Spools pattern.....also no luck. I finally drew it out on graph paper like I wanted it to look using one square per inch. Instead of using "Y" seams, I substituted half square triangles. It took some time, but I managed and am happy with the final produjct. Good luck on your project.

    I have the book Royal Stars of the States, 50 majestic quilts, from House of White Birches. There is an Idaho star block in it but it is not 12 1/2. It makes a 79 x 79 quilt.

    who is the book by or the block variation by that you are looking for?
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    Is the one posted on this site the one you are looking for? It appears more ornate than the others found on the Internet.
    This is from Carol Doak 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars.

    Marcia Hohn (Quilter's Cache) has the Idaho Beauty which finishes at 16" - but if you downsize the pieces by 1/4, i.e. the hsts finish at 1-1/2" instead of 2", the center squares are 3" instead of 4", etc., it will finish at 12" - easy peasy and quite stunning!
